Sunday 28 August 2016. Meadowbrook and East Curtis Road

It was 72 humid degrees under mostly cloudy skies this morning at 7:15 as I headed out on Discovery II to meet a friend for a Sunday morning ride.

We looped through Meadowbrook Park and discovered great blue Lobelia on the recently managed Peg Richardson Hickman Wildflower Walk.

Showed my friend the cardinal flower sites, and she liked them but was not up for traversing the stickers and mud for a close look.

Also we stopped to admire the secret legions of cream gentians at the Freyfogel overlook.

Then on we went toward Philo Road and east on Curtis Road.

Loved being in the open spaces while my friend and I had good conversation! Reminded me again that good conversation may be the most fundamental of human needs and as such the most precious of gifts. We did, however, worked up a good sweat in the humidity and relative stillness of the air. Not usual for a morning ride.

Was usual not to get a lot of photos when with company

but was glad as always for the ride and grateful for my good friend with whom I could share it.

About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking "http://30daysofbiking.com/ on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
